Retail Therapy - Round 2

Thursday, May 20, 2010

Yesterday was such a disappointment, went to Penney's at lunch and even stopped at Dress Barn on my way home from work - and I came home with $$$ in my wallet and bagless - NOTHING, NADA, ZIP, ZILCH.

Don't know why I've got shopping fever, but it's like a drug - gotta have it. So I'm gonna hit up Macy's today at lunch, my goodness they are bound to have a sale, they are always having a sale - just hope there's something with my name written all over it.

A Girls Gotta SHOP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That's because you're looking so great - you just need that new outfit to show off your great look. :) But I agree, a girls gotta shop

    That always happens to me....when I'm ready to do some serious shopping, I can't find a thing that i like, or that's a good enough deal to buy!! Good luck on your shopping spree!!

    Have fun shopping! I found the cutest denim and twill walking shorts and ethnic style t-shirts at Sams Club last month. No Macy's within 300 miles :(

    Oooooh! While you're at Macy's, I'll be at New York and Co. They have this super cute dress I saw - totally cruise worthy! I can't wait to see if I love it as much in person as I do online! Plus, all their shorts are on sale - buy one, get one for $10! Can't beat that!!!!

Hope you find something amazing! And, thanks for thinking I'm motivational! Afterall, that little dress hainging in the door way for next weekend is my inspiration.

Workout Done to make time for RETAIL THERAPY.

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Got up early this morning for a workout, didn't work up a sweat, still trying to take it easy, but a 30-minute walk does wonders for setting your mood for the day. emoticonSo my workout for today is done. Good for me since I want to spend my lunch hour getting some retail therapy at the mall, maybe a new blouse, a workout tank top, a desperately needed pair of shorts, or a new silver bangle (I lost the one I have had for 10 yrs). Undecided on what exactly I'm looking for but I'll know it when I find it, and of course it has to be a bargain emoticon just something new to keep the good mood going. Hope everyone has a great day.

24 to a 12

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Bought my first size 12 dress since 1990 something to wear to a friend's wedding this past weekend. I felt like a million bucks. I can't describe how wonderful I felt wearing it, I was confident and I had a great time. I'm still hangin on Cloud Nine. I used to wear a size 22/24 and now I am in a 12. Empowering. I have worked so hard and still have a little ways to go, but buying and wearing that dress definitely gave me the "umph" I needed to keep going. Has it been hard? yes. Is it worth it? Absolutely, can you tell from the smile on my face.


Here's a pic of my hubby and daughter too. We had so much fun dancing the night away, something about a new dress and hot pink heels to boost the confidence.




Thanks so much to all my SP friends, who motivate me and keep me going, you are all fabulous, couldn't have come this far without you.

Outta Commission

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Well I am officially out of commission as far as working out for a few days, had a minor surgical procedure yesterday and really sore today. No workout videos for this week, but I can manage a walk, but no running. Maybe a week off will do me good, kick me off this plateau.

    Get better. Often a break makes your body much stronger when you get back to it. It enables your body to adjust and repair. emoticon

Rainy Monday

Monday, May 17, 2010

It's really hard to be in a great mood when you wake up and it's raining. Ooh, drat. Gonna have a good day anyway. Weekend was a whirlwind, glad to settle into the weekly routine. Hope everyone has a great week.
